Looking to get a place in the Amsterdam Marathon for my father as a Christmas gift and just wondered if there would be any issues in using my e-mail address to register. Is this going to cause issue further down the line? And if so, is it possible to change it later down the line?
Think I have decided on Amsterdam. Can get myself a free place through work and registration seems fairly easy. Also heard it's a relatively flat course, and like Running Rodent said, easy to get to. Also in October which gives me plenty of time to train as this would be my first marathon. Dad is hoping for sub 4 hours so I got to train hard, can't let the old man win.
Thanks for all the advice. Berlin is definitely on my list of marathons to do!
I am looking to buy my Dad a place in an international marathon for Christmas as this has been a goal of his and I too would like to join. This would be our first marathons, so can anyone recommend a good international marathon to take part in? Also any in the UK, but international preferably as would tie it in with a weekend away.
